I guess we'll get some updated development tools in two weeks with  
the 10.5 beta anyway. But honestly I don't think a lot of people  
would install different development tools just to compile ffmpeg, and  
we should try to keep ffmpeg usable with default dev tools which is  
99.99% of people are using.
